In other words, I'm old.
I can't stand atop a douchebag podium and yell that I'm such an oldbie and I've been around the community forever, because I really haven't been around the community lately. In fact, it's been years.

I still like to come back every now-and-again just to see what's changed and if there are a few of the "O.G.'s" still around. Rikus and... Circy, maybe? I still muss with a copy of MMF2 every now and then, but only to mock up applications or little utilities I use on a daily basis. I purchased a copy thinking I was going to get more use out of it. I don't do much of anything serious with Clickteam products any longer. Photoshop, web design, and audio and video editing are more my bag. Albeit noobish, I guess I dig the near instant results and gratification.

I still remember #k&p on dalnet like it was last year.
I signed on in 1997, two years after I bought a copy of Klik&Play; just as soon as my parents bought their first 486 and I could sign onto the interwebs at a blazing 14.4 kbps. It took about 50 seconds to download a pr0n pic, and about an hour to download mIRC. Totally worth it, though. I watched people come and go (some get k-lined) on a mostly regular basis up until 1999. I passed up Click&Create for The Games Factory, and stuck with TGF most of the way though Multimedia Fusion's lifespan. I worked on a few projects, admin'd my own short-lived community site, ran the second most popular klik-related channel on dalnet, and released a couple of not-so-popular games.

The klik community lost me to web design... and photoshop, but mostly web design. Remember Netscape Navigator? I wouldn't remember it if it weren't for the days of sleep I lost making "totally awesome web layouts with iFRAMES!". Neat for it's time, but sad in retrospect. I moved onto multimedia authoring until my computer crapped out on me in 2008. The machine I'm on now is nearly 9 years old. Not much good for nothin' but photo editin', I reckon. Years down the road, I've dabbled in just about every kind of media authoring short of Flash (which I would benefit from learning).

Anywho... reply if you know what I'm talkin' 'bout.
Reply if you don't have the foggiest and you like attention.
Reply if you think bacon should be it's own food group.
...or don't reply. Be that way. Myehhhh!

I'm still here Though I prefer the use of my real name now rather than "Circy" as I want my own name to be recognised for any games that I release. Rikus is still here, he took a break for a bit but has returned! I do miss some of the old guys, but people like Alonso are still present Mostly full of different people though since those days. I miss Zellix, Zenith, DBack and Nash.

I remember the old days, especially as I've been a part of the community since 1999. I too miss #k&p but we have Gwerdy Chat now at the Clickteam forums

Good to hear from you, I hope you stick around We're the last of a dying breed, us oldbies

Yeah, Nash messaged me over facebook about a year ago, and I still talk to Muz once in a blue moon. I might be able to pass you an IM handle or url via PM if you're interested in catching up. As far as sticking around goes, I'm in the middle of a little 8-bit RPG project I plan to use as a digital business card, but I already have about half an engine implemented, so I may as well polish that off and do something useful with the engine afterward. I'm sure I'll be around asking people how to do half the crap that used to come as second-nature to me years ago.

Hey. Glad to see you around. Some of the old guys have been popping around here. I talked to Stevie237 a couple of days ago. There's also Nim (if he's the guy from O³) and Clubsoft; Beau and Riko have made some posts recently. Were you working on a point and click game like 10 years ago? Anyway, it would be nice to see some pictures/information of your project.

Nice to see another ancient kliker roaming TDC again - welcome back .

I joined TDC when my resident klik hangout (iklik-it.com) was dieing (great community - awful website boss!). So I have been around for a long long time - and still have hardly anything to show.

Surely that's an achievement haha.

Ahh, #k&p. I've been thinking of bringing back some kind of klik/indie IRC channel to Coldfront, since I play a bunch of games with people who heavily use Coldfront, been idling on it all day. But can't really be bothered. I think the klik community average age really went up, nobody really idles on IRC these days anymore. And yeah, a lot of klikers use Gwerdy, but they're not my clique.

BTW, if you have Nash on facebook, get him to add me too. I think he lives only half an hour from me, would be cool to actually get in touch with him.

I consider myself an oldbie too. Though no one really remembers me even though I've been around since TK and the ilk(found klikkers on the web 98-99). The fact that I've changed nick one or two times could be part of the problem.
I recognize all of you though.

I remember when all the Klik-communities popped up everywere and when Hamish posted goatse(if you know what I mean) on the faind forum for the first time!

T'was nice.

yeh i can relate to being old and in case anyone can relate to having wasted his life in the click community well i can relate
you were smart enough to fuck off at some point and do web design while most are still stuck in here and we even enjoy it

what im saying is: i remember the days in #k&p; we later had #tgf as well just to be cool. where TGF was mostly the people who would later hang around on total klik.

i remember and still love total klik. those were the BEST days in the community, hell i say the golden days. we had total klik, planet klik, daily click of course and something i could never spell: kliketty klik? or something. they once had a christmas competition and there was a christmas bomberman clone which was pretty good. hell at one point we even had the natomic forums.

we had the BIG groups like faind and natomic where faind was total klik and natomic was planet klik and it would always be total klik VS natomic. where tdc was THE click page where everyone would go to- and it still is. the only page that remained.

so yeh i really miss the old days. i miss all the stuff that was happening and i miss a lot of old people: any old TK members- where are you?

The_Antisony!! Long time! i still frequent the site, but most of the time its just scanning through the news. to be honest, the games here no longer interest me like they used to. gone are the days where we actually look forward to big releases like ed.

not that the quality of games here have dropped... but perhaps its just the indie community becoming a bit too saturated lately.

its undeniable how much of an impact the klik community has on my life. i was never quite as involved in the community, and i doubt many oldies here even remember me, but that interest has sustained and im taking game design in university now... hoping to bring that passion further.

It's nice to see some of the older, more mature clickers still around. I've been clicking for about 11-12 years, but I've never been really active in the Click community. Most people here have never even heard of me, even though I've been to this site pretty much daily for years and years.

I also remember somehow getting involved with the vcade through spending far too much time trying to falsify records. I also used to love my @natomic.com email address. Woot.

I guess being around in the klik Golden Age. Back when Total Klik, Planet Klik, and The Daily Click were around. Back when #k&p and #tgf were bustling on DALnet.

Hey! I'm an oldster! Started out at Silky's posting on The Wall as "Severe Hellfire". I was young and actually thought that was pretty badass at the time. I was probably posting some nonsense about how I was going to make an RPG in Klik & Play. If I ever had, it almost certainly would have had MIDI versions of music from Square games in it. I never did.

Used to hang out in #k&p all the time as either "Cald" or "CALD6801". I once got the opportunity to ask a question of Clickteam, so I asked them "why can't the French do math?" Lulz were had.

I was briefly a part of a few teams. 83rd Stasis and Fallen Angel come to mind. You know the little cartoony angel logo that showed up at the beginning of a bunch of FA games? I designed that! Probably my greatest contribution to the community, sadly. I also did all of the graphics for Texmo's game Mega Munt 2, and a couple of music tracks for Hamish's Commando (in the credits as Kyle Aldrich, since that's my name). The only game I ever actually finished myself was a game called Slime Ball for the old Total Klik 4-color/2-bit competition. If some digital packrat out there somehow has a copy, I'd love to have it. I lost all my old Klik stuff a few hard drives ago.

Anybody remember the old Mega Girl project a bunch of people were working on? I think it was a big 83rd Stasis collaboration. I don't think it ever went anywhere, but I was sorta kinda working on that. I miss those old days. And I miss making fun of Nobuyuki.

Yeah, but I never really contributed much. I was always more of a graphics guy than anything. I did a bunch of graphical mockups for a potential Gameboy Advance version of Commando, but that never turned into anything. Still, that goofy angel logo made it into a bunch of pretty cool games. So that's neat.

Oldy here, I first saw klik & play demo bundled with sim city 2000 at a friends house and wished I had a computer of my own to get it. A year or two later I finally got one and saved up right away to get klik & play from europress. I was about 16 then, I'll be 30 next month. I remember being blown away by Future Fantasy and having fun with QWERTY. I released RoDney but it was never very popular, nor was I.

I also remember the klik and play message board on AOL, Silkys etc. Those were the days.

I'm an oldie too!

I was never a big part of the community, just kind of always there. I started using Klik products about 12 years ago, so around the same time as you other old guys. Hence my nickname, KNPdude.

Great to see some of the old guys still around. Personally I am going to stick around now because after doing some personality tests, it looks like I'm very well suited for doing creative work like making video games so I'm going to stick to it. Considering an exporter for Android devices is coming I am definitely waiting around for that (extra residual income, anyone?)! Of course I still can't kick my copy of Klik & Play - I never use it but it's fun to open once in a while for nostalgic purposes. Ahh gotta love the feel of those old Klik games..

I've been knocking around since 2001 although I didn't officially create my account untill late 2002. I remember buying a copy of the original games Factory in a shop called Electronic Boutique which is now part of the Game group.

TGF came in what I can only describe as a board game like box with a huge manual, I'd also just purchased my first computer at the time with my parents so I figured I'd use the rest of my birthday & Christmas money to buy a copy of Theme Park, Command & Conquer Red Alert, Championship Manager & Dungeon keeper from the store also. (I remember being so excited ). So anyway being new to computers I had no idea what I was doing with the Games Factory and contacted Click team direct for extra support. I was emailed back by Jeff who advised me to visit a little site called the Daily Click where I could find a whole community of click builders. Although Its only been recent years where I've become more active.

Interestingly enough I'd never heard of Klick & Play until Jess Bowers mentioned it in Klikcast episode once

I guess I'm not old school but I've been around for a decade.


Wow the last 10 years have gone so quick!
